From the director of TWILIGHT comes the trailer for RED RIDING HOOD...

Hey folks, Harry here with a trailer that caused unintentional laughter at the press screening of HARRY POTTER & THE DEATHLY HALLOWS Part 1 last night. The following trailer is attempting in the hardest way to drag the whole TWILIGHT crowd into a RED RIDING HOOD movie, that has been seemingly been transformed into a JACOB movie, about a girl and her werewolf boyfriend. At least, that's what I get from the trailer - and yeah... although it has a pretty outstanding cast, it just looks like a FUNNY OR DIE joke waiting to happen. I'm serious. This is gothic porn - and there's nothing wrong with that... so long as it becomes great gothic porn. But I seriously don't get that vibe from this trailer. It feels --- well, I guess I'll use Mr Beaks' word... "CHEESEDICK" yeah. That describes it. Here ya go...

Ya know, the sexy RED RIDING HOOD was done about a zillion times better by TEX AVERY, but you kids might not have seen that, so I'll include it after this very long link

    Twinkle has changed movies... Near Dark, Fright Night, and The Lost Boys made Vampires cool, and Twinkle comes along and just messes it all up for all of us.

    Even though these blatant rip-offs are inevitable

    by CreasyBear

    they're still irritating. Surely even the Twilight fans will look at this trailer and just shrug.

    Most Ridiculous Trailer EVER

    by ThisBethesdaSea

    This movie looks like a parody film...ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. What's funny is I actually wanted to like it. I love Lycanthropy and am always ready for a good story. It wants to be Twilight SO BAD! THIS WILL TAK AT THE BOX OFFICE.

  • Nov. 16, 2010, 5:45 p.m. CST

    Jesus Christ almighty!

    by deanmail

    What the hell is Gary Oldman - this is the same guy from Sid And Nancy, Bram Stokers Dracula, The Professional, The Contender and The Dark Knight, I bloody hope he doesnt start doing suspect movies like DeNiro started doing after Heat and Casino and absolutely trash his legacy of great performances

    by D o o d

    it's going to be a tough pill for me to swallow if he does, but I guess these terrible movies in their latter years are the paycheck for all their hard work in the former. I don't hate them for it, I just wish they would continue to make and appear in great movies!

    by Darth_Kaos

    I think what makes me laugh the most besides just the pure awfulness of it, is that the young studs have contemporary haircuts.<br> And they really shouldn't advertise it as 'From The Director Of Twilight'

    Yo, Cheesedicks

    by Gozu

    It doesn't look good, but honestly, it doesn't look half as bad as a LOT of the shit I've seen posted recently. "Battle for Los Angeles" looks like an overwrought hack-job, Jason Statham is not Charles Bronson, and I don't care about Harry Potter and I'm glad it's almost over. That said, the red cloak against the white snow is striking and Amanda Seyfried is really hot (after "Chloe," she can do little wrong).

    They should just cast the Jonas brothers or Justin Bieber.

    by bubcus

    It looks half-good and half cheesy (as in Twilight cheese-ball cheesy). Probably a good date movie though.

  • Nov. 16, 2010, 7:40 p.m. CST


    by roguechef664

    This looks SOOOOO bad. I mean epically bad. How the hell did this get greenlit?? Looks like someone saved one of Tim Burton's used condoms spilled over the script of yet another shitty over angsty teen-based dark romance that is slowly destroying our civilization. I mean, I like some dark fantasy. But, at least make it good.

  • In The Mask when Jim Carrey first sees Cameron Diaz singing up on stage and he starts howling, I always wondered where that was taken from. Interesting...

    The Tex Red Riding Hood..

    by Big_Daddy_Nero

    I had never seen that before, and having just watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit a couple weeks ago, I find it amazing how much of that Tex cartoon was lifted almost verbatim and put into Roger Rabbit. Obviously this was one of the major inspiration points for Spielberg when making his film, but it's a shame it paid homage to something that nobody has seen.

    "Who's Afraid?" Answer: We All Are.

    by drumble

    Not content with putting one of the greatest character actors there is (Oldman) in a ridiculous purple get-up, they also see fit to reveal that hair-gel was even being used in the dark ages! I have never seen a more shameless attempt to glean success off of another film. Well, maybe I have, but this still makes me mad.

    by BradZuhl

    The script for this was a grisly, rip-roaring yarn. Sure it had some romance, but it wasn't this high school musical/Twilight stuff. Looks like Hollywood has ruined another great script in their endless quest for mo' money.

    It doesn't look THAT bad.

    by Royston Lodge

    I mean, I'm not interested in seing it but it doesn't look like a cinematic abortion either.<p> With Gary Oldman and Lucas Haas in it, how bad can it be?<p> Amanda Seyfried leaves me cold, and the boyfriend looks boring, but whatever.<p> (It seems pletty clear to me that the boyfriend is the woodcutter, not the werewolf.)

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 10:26 p.m. CST


    by brattyben

    If you look closely in the Mask, Stanley is watching this particular episode on his TV when the landlady yells at him through the wall to keep it down. This is just before his first transformation. In fact, Tex Avery was the basis for all the cartoon physics in that movie. Just a fun fact.

    by V'Shael

    The trailer ran before Harry Potter, and I guess there's not much audience cross over between Twilight and Potter, since the audience basically groaned and laughed and mocked at this thing. What the fuck was Gary Oldman thinking?

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 11:42 a.m. CST

    If it has Gary Oldman in it? Well, if he's NOT playing a fucking dwarf.
